  1. It does not seem to be verified any longer. There are great seats for Chicago still available. I've seen great seats for other cities. It did not check if I was verified or not. I was searching and not purchasing. I don't think verified enters into things any longer for the American leg of this tour.

  2. The music of Landlady (to my ears, anyway) sounds unique - however, one of the things I think is really sweet on this album is that lyrically two songs (at least) couldn't be more about/to Bono's wife. The lyrics to "Landlady" and "You're The Best Thing About Me" are almost complete quotations from interviews over the years with Bono about his wife. The band allegedly toyed with the idea of naming AB "Adam" when he was photographed without the impediments of clothing - in a different way (obviously), the band could have considered entitling this album "Ali". (Although those less familiar with the band might have thought they were honoring a great heavyweight boxer...) Yet another thing to like about the album.

  3. Just received downloads of The Unforgettable Fire live at Croke Park 1985 from a friend. It's like Christmas! UF 85 was my first show and it's bringing back great memories. Amazing!

  6. I really like what you said. I like how you wrote it. I like how you end it with a rhetorical yet literal question, only to answer it with an ampersand. How you did that comes across to me as very U2ish and quite apropos. One of the things I love so much about this band is that I am aware of their numerous metaphors. They make me think. Then, I feel the groove and get so into it that I forget the message of the music as I'm feeling it organically. A good example is Until The End of the World. For the 360 tour...when Bono starts yelling, "Judas, Judas.", I was baffled. I turned to my friend and asked, "Why the hell is he saying that?". When The Edge starts the guitar riff...there's liftoff and I forget what the song is actually about. I had not thought of its literal meaning for years. I completely forgot. In my grooving I started thinking about some person, at a party, that's dumping crap all over everyone. That's what it meant to me. Since 360-the literal meaning has returned and it's a kick ass song in a completely different manner even though it's the same. That guitar riff remains. I know I can look forward to it meaning something else, yet again, because it's one of the things that I think U2 does best. I've never encountered this with another band in such a profound manner. SOE-It's the Little Things and Landlady give me a similar feeling even though I've yet to discern their lyrical content. It doesn't matter to me right now, so why not save it for later? It's why I love SOE so much. Some messages are obvious, however; it is such a multi-faceted gem that I'll be listening and discovering years from now. imho.

  8. calling someone a hater because they think a album like no line is poor is pathetic.I virtually love every track of every album they have made up till no line, very few tracks i dislike if any.People like this would rave over a album full of fart sounds if it was u2 and obviously get upset hearing the truth that its not just their worst but a poor virtualy tuneless album.I dont rate soi either and thought the tour was the worst i have seen.Sure they sounded ok but played to many new poor songs like the no line tour and didnt like the stage set up. most of the time the band were somewhere else in the arena i was in redzone.Enjoyed the joshua tree tour much more on a more traditional stage although they didnt sound quite as good.Some peoples views are blinded by their love for the band i am far from a hater my wife thinks i am obsessed i just say it as it is their music is probably 90% of my listening live stuff mainly and the new album is ok better than no line and soi but not as good as the rest .
